METZ will release their new full-length Strange Peace, on September 22nd, in Canada via Royal Mountain Records and throughout the rest of the world on Sub Pop Records. Alex Edkins (guitar, vocals), Hayden Menzies (drums), and Chris Slorach (bass) recorded at Electrical Audio in Chicago, live off the floor to tape with Steve Albini. The trio continued to assemble the album (including home recordings, additional instrumentation) back at home in Toronto, adding the finishing touches with longtime collaborator, engineer and mixer, Graham Walsh. “Cellophane”, the first song to be released from the new album, is now available to stream. METZ have scheduled international tour dates in support of Strange Peace, starting September 5th in Atlanta.

Alex Edkins on the album:

“The songs on Strange Peace are about uncertainty, “they’re about recognizing that we’re not always in control of our own fate, and about admitting our mistakes and fears. They’re about finding some semblance of peace within the chaos.”
